Jimmy Beans Wool & Rowan Retreat 2015

JBW Rowan Retreat    Join us for an intimate weekend retreat with your favorite Jimmy Beans Wool staff, the legendary Martin Storey (a knitting guru and designer from Rowan Yarns), and a rejuvenating spa experience with Black Rock Mud!

Once again, this all-inclusive long weekend will include lodging at Northstar-at-Tahoe, as well as visits to Reno to the Jimmy Beans Wool retail store and warehouse. We heard you last year, and 2015's retreat will include more time in the shop and warehouse so you can soak up as much yarny goodness as possible. We'll wrap up this long weekend with a very special spa extravaganza. (No robes required!)

Enjoy a tour of JBW's facilities, plenty of fun shopping opportunities, and take in our Great Wall of Rowan! After last year's requests for a longer retreat, this year's event will include three nights of lodging, all meals, a class and Q&A session with Martin Storey, plenty of time to knit or crochet, and a mud mask experience like you've never had before.

We'll kick the weekend off with a cocktail hour Thursday evening to meet some new friends (or reunite with old ones!), and the fun will continue through Sunday. Additionally, each participant will receive an awesome swag bag -and all of this for $595, that's less than for a weekend in Napa! We hope you'll join us for this fun and relaxing weekend retreat! You can download a registration form in .PDF format here.
